ABOUT HITCHCOCK'S "GEOLOGY
Dr. S. E. Bishop Says I'ela Pnhn! Pos
sibly so Antagonizes the Theory of
Calcareotts'Oilgln or Volcunoes.
EDITOR STAR The contribution to
our knowledge of this Island Is unques
tionably a very vuluuble one, which Is
made by Prof. C. H. Hitchcock In his
pamphlet of 45 pages, published as u
"Bulletin of the Geological Society of
.America, rue last tlireu pages ure
"Notes on the Tertiary Geology of
Oahu," by W. H. Dall. Dr. Hitchcock
occupied considerable portions of lSSsS
and lSSS In observing the geology of
tins island, especially along the rail
way, In the secondary craters, and on
the Nuuanu Pall. Without uny pro
fessional expertness, having only a long
local familiarity with the phenomenu
discussed, I Incline to regard his ob
servations as accurate and acute, and
nis conclusions bused upon tliem as
I desire here, however, to express dis
sent to certain points made by the
Dr. Hitchcock, on page 31, seeing sub
stantially to adopt what I presume Is
the theory of Alex. Agasslz, that vol
canic activity starts from extensive tet
tiary deposits, so that thiol: limestone
accumulations underlie u.i .. .untalns
of Oahu. This seems to L. purely hy
pothetical, and without fi.i..lation be
yond Agasslz' theory that Vast masses
of limestone accumulate in the bed of ;
me ocean, and tneir weight so disturbs
the earth's crust as to engender Assures
through which volcanic eruptions es
cape. I think the evidence Is ngalnst the
existence of limestone beds underlying
any o? these Islands. The limestone Is
apparently all confined to fringing coral
reefs. It Is characteristic of the sec
ondary craters fringing the shores of
Oahu, among their ejecta to have dis
charged great quantities of calcareous
matter, Including coral and shells,
which are found Imbedded In the tufas
discharged. Dr. Hitchcock specifies
many Instances of this fact. But to the
best of my knowledge no calcareous
matter whatever Is discharged from In
terior craters like Tantalus, or the one
In Luakaha. If the Vents of those cra
ters came through limestone beds three
or four miles underneath, surely some
fragments of the limestone would have
been torn off and brought to the sur
face, as was done by Diamond Head
and Koko Head craters.
I have never seen a trace of calcar
eous matter in any of the older lavas
of our mountains, which must have
torn their way up through those Imag
ined limestone beds, If such existed. In
July, 18S7, at Kllauea, In company with
Dr. J. T. Dana, wo carefully scrutin
ized the rocky ejecta of the great ex
plosion of 1790. These covered a vast
area with a great variety of stones lorn
from the bowels of the earth. We cer
tainly never noticed a single calcareous
specimen nmong them.
I especially object to Mr. Dall's con
clusion that Diamond Head was thrown
up In the very ancient Pliocene period.
This crater evidently belongs to a very
recent period, though older than tint
Koko Heads, which are but slightly
lluted by rain erosion. Dall even tries
to prove the very modern material of
the Palama quarry ancient, by alleging
that the contained shells of Conus nnd
Purpura were not "at- present repre
sented on the ancient beaches" (page
57), wherens those shells are among our
most common living species.
He also tries to make out that the
Achatlnellldae (land shells) found In
the breccia nt the foot of Diamond
Head nre ancient types, whereas Dr. J.
T. GuIIck (page 54) found no essential
variation In them from present species.
He says, "The conclusion to which I
came was that the whole mass of Dia
mond Head had been slowly deposited
In comparatively shallow water, and
gradually elevated without being sub
jected to notable llexure. The ejection
of material at first must have been In
termittent, with long quiescent periods,
to enable the shore to have been re
populated with mollusks and corals."
Mr. Dall evidently has no conception
of the process of formation of a tufa
cone, which Is rapid, not slow. The
tufa Is driven high Into the air In the
form of hot mud, which falls In vast
showers around the vent, building up a
ring of soft laminated rock. If the fall
had been Intermittent, with "long quies
cent periods" Intervening, that would
be evidenced by layers of soil Interposed
between the strata or laminae of tufa,
which Is not the case.
I am not able to offer any definite ob
jection to Mr. Dall's reference of the
Pearl river fossil strata with their ex
tinct shells, to the pliocene. The moun
tains of Oahu, as proved by their Im
mense subaerlal erosions, are very an
clent. Dall goes so far as to say "It Is
probable that Oahu was land, inhabited
by antmnls, as early as the Eocene."
Pela paha! Possibly so.

A Traveler Who Thinks the Orlentala
Have Reasons to Hnte the Forelgnerq
ntul Drive Them Out.
There are two sides to every ques
tion, and oven the rioting population ot
China Is not without people to defend
their acts to a considerable extent.
Some people who have traveled In China
think the Mongolians have had enough
provocation to Justify them In hatred
of foreigners. "I don't blame the Chi
namen at all for rising against foreign
ers," said a Honolulu man who has
traveled In China extensively, "nnd I
believe Americans or Englishmen would
rise against foreigners In their coun
tries n good deal quicker, on the snmo
provocation, though they would not, ot
course, be as cruel and violent, and
their governments would preserve or
der. "The white man In China Is ever
ready to Insult the country by disre
gard of Its laws and of the feelings of
the people. Men who go there from
other countries usually have only con
tempt for the Celestial's Ideas of law
and government, and they think they
can do Just as they please. To an ex
tent they do It, riding over the peoplo
of the country.
"America hns laws which keep out
the Chinese simply because the people
do not want them In the country. Yet
Americans Insist upon the right to go to
China ,and when they get there refuse
to respect the laws of the land.
"Another great and natural cause of
Chinese hatred ot foreigners Is the mis
sionary activity. Of course, the mis
sionaries mean to do good, nnd probably
they do a lot of good, but they attack
Chinese Ideals and customs In unmeas
ured terms, and naturally arouse re
sentment. This Is undoubtedly one of
the great causes of the feeling against
white men In the Empire. Of course,
the murder of helpless men nnd women
Is an outrage, but how about the burn
ing of negroes' nt the stake In Ameri
can States? What did the people of the
Pacific coast cities do to Chinese In the
time of the riots before the exclusion
laws were pnssed and what would they
Ijave done If the general government
had not been strong enough to control
them? Only a short time ago white
men In St. Louis set upon and brutally
attacked women of their own race be
cause the women wore patronizing a
street car company which had a strike
on Its hands."
WHAT HE IS WAITING FOR.
Benjamin Harrison saya he has no
presidential aspirations. Perhaps the
distinguished Hoosler desires to give us
a striking Imitation of the office seek
